Subject: Antigua, Chichicastenango, Lake Atitlan.
This reel shows the expedition in the highlands beginning with Antigua and various scenes around that town including earthquake ruins which were still there when I visited in the 190s, as well as market scenes.They then appear to go further into the highlands with scenes of women making pottery, a man carrying those pots, and women washing laundry in a communal basin. Some weaving. Then the market at Chichicastenango and the Santo Tomas Church. It ends with a boat ride on Lake Atitlan.
